Prepare all ingredients before beginning.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Lay one flour tortilla on counter top. On the lower third of the tortilla, layer beans, cheese, chicken, cilantro, jalapeño, salsa and olives.
Carefully fold the side of the tortilla closest to you over the top of the mixture. Fold in the sides next and then continue to roll. Place rolled burrito on the prepared baking sheet fold side down. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
Brush the tops of each burrito generously with the melted butter.
Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, flip the burritos, brush again with butter and bake an additional 5 to 8 minutes, until the top is golden brown.
Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to serving plate and pour taco sauce over the top to serve.
